Atlanta Braves Current Lineup (2024)

Below is the projected lineup for the Atlanta Braves for the 2024 season. Obviously, depending on whether the pitcher is a righty or lefty, the lineup will be different as a platoon is expected in left field between Jarred Kelenic (L) and newly acquired right handed outfielder Adam Duvall. 

Against right handed batters, the Braves have been experimenting with Michael Harris II in the leadoff spot as the Braves continue to search for a leadoff man to replace the reigning MVP Ronald Acuna. 

High contact, quickness and speed define Ozzie Albies at the plate but don’t sleep on his power. Albies classic left handed swing is perfect for the porch in Truist Park. Albies stroked 33 Home Runs in 2023. 

One of the favorites to be the MVP in 2024, Austin Riley brings power and consistency to the spot once occupied by hall of famer Chipper Jones. 

It was a rough start to the 2023 season for Marcell Ozuna, struggling mightily at the plate and being arrested for a DUI. But Ozuna more than made up for that towards the end of the season as he got fire that lasted into the spring. 

A classic left handed power swing, Matt Olson pounded a league leading 54 home runs in 2023. 

Back from the IL, Sean Murphy has been raking in the Minors and will hope to keep that up through the course of the 2024 season. We need him. 

The reigning MVP put on one of the great displays of power and speed in 2023 becoming the first ever member of the 70-40 club. 

Michael Harris patrols center field and possesses a cannon arm as well. At the plate, Harris can be feast or famine (especially against lefties).  

The Braves shocked friends and family of Braves nation when Arcia was announced as the opening starter at shortstop coming out of spring training in 2023. Arcia impressed on his way to an all-star season. 

Possessing enormous raw power, Kelenic was acquired in the offseason with the hope that the Braves could make the most out of the young stars potential.
